Good people do exist. And in large groups, they can make amazing things happen.

There is a group of people coming together that want to make out city better. Transform Rockford has been improving the city for the last three years, and on Tuesday (11/15) the group met at Heartland Church to discuss ideas to make our city a Top 25 Community.

The results were a plan with 140 projects that will be worked on over the next several years, according to These projects range from improving education to helping ex-inmates. Personally, I am so thankful for this group and can't wait to see all of these plans set into motion, and for our community to reap the benefits. I was there the night Transform Rockford was introduced to the us all. This is a great way to pay it forward and if you are interested in becoming a volunteer and would like more info, please make sure you visit Transforms Rockford's website.
